New York: The New Press, 2002. First Edition. First Printing. 278, notes, index, some ink underlining and marginal marks to text, one page corner creased This white paper on the world's water resources asks whether there is enough water, whether there is enough access to water, and whether there is a possibility that, in the near future, wars may be fought over water. The authors examine how water is becoming politicized, and they consider the role of transnational corporations in the unequal distribution of this wealth. The major bottled-water producers--Perrier, Evian, Naya, and now Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Co--are part of one of the fastest growing and least regulated industries, buying up freshwater rights and drying up crucial supplies. The consumption of water doubles every twenty years, more than twice the rate of increase of human population. Blue Gold captures in striking detail the forces behind the increasing depletion of the world's freshwater and the human and ecological impacts.
